Artist Profile of Wayne Robbins: Naturalist, Teacher, Woodcarver
The Kelpie welcomes woodcarver Wayne Robbins' work and love of the natural world to the gallery. Through his teaching and art, Wayne creatively seeks to share his passion for the sea and to inspire faithful stewardship of the Earth’s fragile ecosystem.
Each piece is designed to highlight the natural grace and beauty of the subject sea animal and the unique features of the varied woods from which they are carved. Wayne's personal knowledge of marine life allows him to gracefully and beautifully recreate these inspirational creatures, and the anatomical accuracy and movements are enhanced by the color and texture of the woods, finished in a natural, clear coating.
We invite you to join us in appreciation of Wayne Robbins' woodcarvings at The Kelpie Gallery this season!
